Chengdu’s Tibetan Quarter – Gateway to Tibet


Published at eChinacities online magazine

Many consider Chengdu to be the gateway to Tibet, so it is only reasonable that visitors to Chengdu would want to visit the Tibetan Quarter. Chengdu’s Tibetan Quarter, or Little Lhasa, is located in the south-west of Chengdu, near the First Ring Road. It is in close proximity to two other Chengdu tourist attractions, Wuhou Temple and Jin Li Street.

As the name suggests, Chengdu’s Tibetan Quarter abounds in Tibetan culture. There are Tibetan restaurants, Tibetan art shops, Tibetan clothing shops and Tibetan souvenirs. This is not entirely unexpected, as the area is home to tens of thousands of Tibetans.
